Will Smith will star in an I Am Legend sequel with Michael B. Jordan

Depending on which ending of the 2007 I Am Legend film, you may well be wondering how Will Smith could be returning for a sequel. You may also be thinking why are they making a sequel.

I hear you, but Hollywood does what Hollywood does.

Turns out Akiva Goldsman is returning to write the sequel. Goldman wrote the 2007 adaptation of Richard Matheson’s 1954 novel.

There are no details on the plot, but Deadline reports that Will Smith is back and Michael B. Jordan will be joining him.

Jordan and Elizabeth Raposo are producing via their Outlier Society banner. Smith and Westbrook Studios Co-President/Head of Motion Pictures Jon Mone will produce the project, with Ryan Shimazaki overseeing on behalf of Westbrook Studios. James Lassiter will serve as EP. Goldsman and Greg Lessans will also produce via Weed Road Pictures.

What would you like to see in an I Am Legend sequel?

I have always been a fan of the book and enjoyed all of the adaptations it has spawned. The 2007 film was an enjoyable watch and I can see a few ways they could go with a sequel. We talked about sequel ideas in an episode of the After The Ending podcast and you can listen to that below.
